As Philip and I have been working with our wedding budget, we’ve both been very realistic with what we want versus what is truly possible.
So 6 months ago, when we started envisioning our wedding day and setting our priorities, I have to admit, flowers were a low item on the totem pole. Don’t get me wrong. I love flowers. I think they’re beautiful and certainly wouldn’t complain if I received some tomorrow. But from the beginning of our planning process, I’ve really disliked the idea of spending money on something that will be beautiful for a short amount of time and then will wither, dry away and turn into a fragile mess. I’m SUPER excited to share that I’ve found a solution to my conundrum…a vintage brooch bouquet!
Isn’t that BEAUTIFUL?! Thanks to Amanda over at Fantasy Floral Designs, I’m going to have my very own lovely vintage brooch bouquet created from a collection of pins, earrings, brooches, rings, charms, etc. given to me by friends, family members and others who are special to me. Not only is it a unique piece of art, but it’s a keepsake I’ll get to treasure for years to come!
Everyone I’ve told about my project has been so excited! I’m so excited others are as excited as I am! Just this past week I started telling people and I’ve already been given two brooches! (A cool little frog pin and a lovely gold butterfly!) I CAN’T wait to see what my final product looks like.
If you’re interested in contributing an item for my bouquet or have questions, thoughts, suggestions, PLEASE get in touch with me at becomingmrsdial (at) gmail (dot) com. I’d love to hear from you!
